Festival season might feel like a distant memory but autumn means the return of Oxjam, a month of nationwide live music events founded by Oxfam that aim to raise awareness and funds to fight poverty here in the UK and around the world, all whilst providing a platform for up and coming local musicians to showcase their talents, writes Laura Burgoine…

Oxjam Clapham will take over multiple venues around Clapham High Street on Saturday 10 November with a dynamic line-up of fresh, emerging talent. Confirmed venues include The Bread and Roses, The Sun and The Railway Tavern.

Local hitmakers Caswell, Mee And The Band, The Cold Heart Revue and singer-songwriter Lucy May Walker are among the first acts to be confirmed for the one day festival. For the latest news and announcements follow @OxjamClapham on Twitter and Instagram or like our Facebook page.

Limited early bird tickets cost just £7 and standard advance tickets are £10. Tickets will be exchanged for a wristband providing festival access at all participating venues throughout the day.

All proceeds raised from the day festival go directly to Oxfam and help support development and the fight against poverty in third-world countries, alongside the vital aid for communities suffering in the aftermath of natural disasters.
